      Nice picture. We’ve noticed a lot of clever entrepreneurs in Indonesia too; they’d beat the UK Apprentice contestants hands-down in a business battle I think!

      Colomnbians are very entrepreneurial and its very uncommon to see them begging.

      The llamadas or minutos are they are more commonly known are common all all cities of Colombia. Colombians never have credit on their phones so its very practical to make a quick call for 200 peso or whatever. Other entrepreneurial pursuits at traffic lights include selling dvds, books, candies, avocados, flowers, mobile phone covers and all sorts of street performances.
